A care home is appealing for birthday cards on behalf of a resident with more than 130 foster children - in place of the big party she is accustomed to.
Doris, from Laurel Lodge care home in Norwich, is due to celebrate her 93rd birthday in lockdown, but won’t be visited by any of her large family.
She grew up in Birmingham and joined the Royal Air Force where she met her husband, after which they married and had four children of their own.
They also adopted three more, and spent the remainder of their lives fostering over 130 children who needed their help.
In a statement, the care home said: “Because of the lockdown situation Doris can’t receive any visitors on her special day.
